I’m just an average person seeking truth and beauty in this world.
I believe sincerely that, as Isabel Allende said, ‘you can tell the deepest truths with the lies of fiction’. I am passionate about good books and great movies. I’ve found it’s the easiest way for me to understand and talk about the things I care about.
I don’t believe I have anything particularly new or revelatory to say about any of this, but I want a space to say it anyway.
My interests are varied. I love classic black and white films and the latest new release. I love a corny romantic comedy as much as an enigmatic arthouse film. I love science fiction and stories set in the past.
I am trying (and usually failing) to read more non-fiction.
I love good food and drink.
Friends and family are the cornerstone of my life.
Travel is another passion of mine. I believe nothing broadens the mind like getting out of one’s comfort zone.
The purpose here is to chronicle my attempts to live a more tangible life – a life I can touch and feel, a life I can be proud of, a life full of family, friends, books, cooking, eating, drinking, traveling, learning, etc.
